Beautiful, Just Beautiful...

My friend Cheryl wrote this. I have been blessed to get to know her through our daughter's friendship. She has a heart for Christ and a love that is beautiful to witness.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I AM

When I feel all alone... You are there.

When I know I've done wrong...

When my heart is heavy and I can't go on...You are there.

You are...

the shelter from the storm

the peace when I feel torn

the strength when I am weak

the voice when I can't speak.

When all I want to do is cry...or run away and hide...

You are there.

You run to me when I call Your name.

wanting me to call before the clouds begin to form

before the whirling winds of doubt

before the fear of the storm

threatens to shake my faith and take me out..

Knowing You are always the same

You never change

the Alpha and Omega

Beginning and the End

Creator of the universe

The Holy Spirit wind.

Not just the Beginning and the End...

Everything in between

The here and now - My very present help in trouble

Visible, yet unseen.

My faith becomes belief

My belief becomes hope

My hope becomes relief

My relief becomes victory..

Over sin and death, Shadows and darkness, Sorrow and pain

Bringing

Peace... that passes understanding

Joy... unspeakable

Love beyond measure

for You...

the Son of God, the Prince of Peace

My Savior and Redeemer,

My Rock and My Shelter...

You are...

I AM.

Prayer Requests:


*Rolando and Julia (Guatemala-It has been over five years.), AND Junior and Diamoh (Liberia) to be able to finally come home to their families and that these countries open to legitimate adoptions.
*Renae-For the continued transition of their sweet family. Their daughter joined their family this year!
*Daniel (Liberia) and Jeremiah (Taiwan)- for their continued health issues. God's blessings and Hand on them and their families.
*Our friend's (unnamed, God knows) foster son, his family, and all who will make or influence decisions on his behalf that God's will be done in every aspect of his life.


Personal Prayer Requests:


*My husband and I, right now, are asking for a direct answer from God. We are asking for something so clear that neither of us can miss it. This is a very specific situation. We don't feel we're supposed to share all the details yet. Depending on the answer, it may change more than just our lives. If you have a moment (or many :)), can you pray with us. Can you pray for direct guidance and God's provision (there is a serious financial aspect involved too), that we may clearly see God's answer and be able to act immediately.

*We also ask that you join us in prayer for wisdom and guidance (that we can bring God the most glory) in the career field. We're limited in what we can share, but feel pressed on to pray about both these prayer requests and God knows exactly what we're asking.


*Last, we ask that you pray protection against satan's barbs. Thank you.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
